Nice catch.

I see the difference now, the pec fin is much larger. I was told by 2 people at the pier that it was a big eye so i never really did any research. Thanks

From what I understand you can get some pretty hefty tuna down off key west.

Best bet for Yellowfin under the 130lb range is out in the Bahamas area. They do not get as big as the ones in Mexico or Panama. Out in Marathon they most get Blackfin and sometimes a Yellowfin.

Plenty of blackfins right now off of Dade and Broward . They are one of my favorites to catch . Got 5 once on a trip in the Tugas. The first one ate my bottom bait in 220 ft. , it must a have followed the gog to the bottom. It hit on a locked drag with 50 lb mono. It dragged me from the bow to the stern of the FFF at a full sprint. I swore I had a huge black grouper on. It beat me up pretty good and went 39 lbs bled. They tend to bite well at night or sunrise/sunset. Hit your local headboats up and use fluro or light mono leader to have a better chance at these sharp eyed predators.
Dreaming the dream that one day I can be as good as some of the boatless pros and catch some 12 inch mangrove snapper.
